What a Hoot!

Let me tell you something, I am down with the whole dresser-as-a-changing table idea. Because, duh, when your baby is out of diapers, you still have a very usable dresser.  There is just no disguising a regular changing table after its purpose in life has peaked:  “Hey, uh Susan?  Why is there a changing table in your living room?”  “Don’t be a fool!  That’s obviously a bookcase!”  “Oooookaaaay.”
 
So anyway, here’s a great $8 dresser that Better After reader Brooke repurposed as a changing table. And just in case you were about to point out that any child sleeping in a twin bed should be out of diapers, let me tell you something else: this is a shared bedroom, the crib is just out of sight.  And I think the whole room is outta sight!








 


 


And look!  Brooke didn’t stop there with her bargain finds, she picked up these owls for $3, fixed the toe (claw?  talon?) with an old pen cap and clay, and now she has a sweet little set of bookends.

  14. I like this room so much! Am I missing the link to Brooke’s site? Does Brooke have a place where she’s detailed stuff so I can go and see more and copy and rss and read when updated and– And. Always an and. I think I get more things to put in my Reader from this site than any other.

  15. The owls are so great!! I wish I was better at seeing the potential in finds like those! I’ve seen similar at West Elm, but these are unique, and for a significant savings!

  16. I love the owls, but most of all I love that she kept the hardware on the dresser. I adore those 1950′s clean lines. Gorgeous.
